local handicrafts, regional travel - Oct 2015

Stone carvings, wood carvings, batik, ikat, oleh-oleh. - Apr 2015

Bali's artesians make some of the most beautiful and desireable furniture and handicrafts on earth. Driving around Bali makes you dream about designing your own personal villa. Every imaginable art piece imaginable. I especially admired the traditional stone Balinese carvings, Balinese pagodas, rattan, canopy beds, tropical fishponds, and bronze art. It is simply mindblowing. - Oct 2012

Batik and beautiful furniture. - May 2012

Batik, and lots of it. Each area of the country has its own style. Tailored clothing is cheap. Teak furniture is a fraction of the cost. For something different, purchase carved stone statues locally (note--all those souvenirs in Bali were made elsewhere and available locally at a fraction of the cost). - Oct 2010

Lots of local arts and crafts, excellent custom made furniture, tailored suits and other clothing, 90-minute massage for about $8.Also lots of regional travel opportunities. - Aug 2009
